Summit news briefs: Frisco’s Bubble Gum series to kick off


Bubble Gum series gives racers something to chew on

The ski and ride hill at the Frisco Adventure Park will be hosting the 3rd Annual Bubble Gum Race Series on six Mondays in February and March: Feb. 15, Feb. 29, March 7, March 14, March 21 and March 28. From the “never ever” to seasoned racer, all levels are encouraged to compete in this free race series.

Racers will have the chance to race the course multiple times, and racers will not be timed — but instead, participants will be given pieces of bubble gum, which they will keep or give away based on their race finishes. The racer who has the most bubble gum at the end of the races wins. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the Bubble Gum Series races, and friendly competition between parents, siblings and friends is encouraged.

The races on Feb. 15, March 7 and March 28 will feature a dual slalom course. On Feb. 29 and March 21, an obstacle course will be set up for the races. And on March 14, the series will be shaken up with a Nordic obstacle course.

The Bubble Gum Series races are free, and registration is day-of, from 4-5 p.m. inside the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge located at 621 Recreation Way in Frisco. Races will run from approximately 5-6 p.m. Racers must provide their own ski or snowboard equipment, and helmets are required in order to race. Free hot cocoa and cookies will be served at the Day Lodge post-race.

Snowy Peaks High School students’ art on display Feb. 12

The Art Forum and the Summit County Arts Council will unveil a month-long exhibit Friday, featuring artwork by Snowy Peaks High School students. The opening reception will take place from noon to 2 p.m., Feb. 12, at the Summit County Community and Senior Center, 0083 Nancy’s Place, Frisco. The reception will include a meet-and-greet with student artists and Arts Council representatives.

Snowy Peaks High School is Summit School District’s innovation-learning option for high school students. The school utilizes a blended-learning instructional model, focused on personalized educational experiences, individual support and project-based learning.

The Summit County Arts Council sponsors Snowy Peaks’ art program. Students travel to the Breckenridge Arts District and the Arts Alive Gallery to be mentored by local volunteer artist educators.

The collection spans several years of art education at Snowy Peaks and includes paintings, mosaics, masks and tiles.
